DataTech21 – #OurPeople

September 7 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

#DataFest21 Data Tech #OurData
A #DataFest21 event exploring the potential beyond existing data technologies and techniques


Data Tech will bring together members of industry, the public sector and academia for technical presentations and discussions of salient topics in data science, to share technical expertise, and engage in networking and collaboration. The conference will also serve as a forum to share emerging research in data science.

Together we can explore the potential beyond existing data technologies and techniques.

DataTech was introduced during DataFest19, and the inaugural event was a great success, selling out weeks before the conference. Based on the feedback from attendees, this year we will run parallel sessions on different topics so that participants can choose whichever is more relevant to them.

The theme of DataFest 2021 is #OurData. In previous DataFests, we have celebrated the individuals and teams driving data innovation in Scotland. This year, we are focusing on all of us – a community which can collect, create, and use our data for good. Throughout 2021 we will be exploring the theme of #OurData and the impact data has on people’s lives in the 21st Century. We’ll be tackling the big questions from the perspectives of #OurPlanet – covering the environment and climate change; #OurPeople – which covers all things social, including health and wellbeing; and #OurFuture – exploring the companies and technologies that will shape the decades to come. Each of these themed weeks will have a DataTech event, a DataTalent, and a variety of fringe events.

You can purchase tickets for an individual DataTech or all three for a discounted price.
